Plants are cool and we want to show you how to appreciate the funky Staghorn Fern as it should be – growing vertically. You see, staghorn ferns are epiphytes and these plants actually grow in their native habitat anchored on the side of a tree, rather than planted in the soil. In this workshop you will be taught about epiphytic plants and then shown how to mount a staghorn fern onto a wood slice plank equipped to hang . Staghorn ferns have silvery fuzzy fronds that resemble antlers of our beloved native mammals. With proper care tips you can enjoy this artful plant presentation on a shady patio wall all summer and watch it grow in all of this grand awkwardness.
